For our Writing with Video module 3 I would like to do an extension of my first film and question the relationship between art-making and art education. Within the field practitioners are often encouraged to promote art educational research over art-making practice. This dichotomy is unfortunately aligned with the expression “those that can’t do teach”. Is this happening true in art education? Are art educators inefficient artists?
For this project I would like to interview PhD candidates in art education and question their art making practices alongside research within the field. I would like to make connections between the art we make and the curriculum we teach.
As a photographer art-making is central to my identity and teaching pedagogy. I would like to narrate the film and connect my own values/curriculum/art-making practices to other PhD candidates or faculty in art education.
The film will include participant interviews alongside inserted images of artwork.
Potentially the film will also reference new media, social networking, and the internet as that is where my research interests lie.
Looking forward to it!
